Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC, Features Works by Maura Kenny

Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC, will present Out of Hobcaw, featuring works by Maura Kenny, on view in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery, from Mar. 10 through Apr. 4, 2014. A gallery talk will be given on Mar. 20, beginning at 2pm, followed by a reception from 4:30-6:30pm.

Out of Hobcaw, presents an exhibition of watercolor and mixed media paintings by artist and Coastal Carolina University Professor of Painting Maura Kenny. Kenny, a former resident on the barony, shares her insights into the people, landscape, conservation, and preservation occurring within Hobcaw Barony and provides unique access to its storied history.

Hobcaw, now the Belle W. Baruch Foundation, is a 17,500-acre wildlife refuge and former rice plantation located along the Atlantic Ocean near Georgetown, SC. It’s diversity of ecosystems and people who research, preserve and conserve its flora, fauna and marine life thrive in Kenny’s multi-layered symbiotic paintings that preserve this living treasure for the people of South Carolina.

“My experience on Hobcaw Barony this past spring has re-awakened my appreciation for preservation and sustainability at a time when development here on the southeast coast of South Carolina is increasingly alarming.” Kenny’s works emphasize the importance of preserving the legacy and cultural relevance of this area.

The Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery is located on the Campus of Coastal Carolina University in the Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts.
